Can everyone stop finding things 'pitch-perfect''?"

'Writer/director Nicole Holofcener (Lovely & Amazing) is adept at fashioning credible characters, particularly female. Rebecca (Rebecca Hall) is a mammography technician who is devoted to her crotchety grandmother (Ann Guilbert). Guilbert (who was Millie on The Dick Van Dyke Show) plays 91-year-old Grandma Andra with pitch-perfect comic timing.' — USA Today

I think I've had enough of "pitch perfect." Can everyone stop using it now? Maybe they could junk it the same time they junk "limn." Just typing that word gives me the shivers. Anyone who uses it is a complete scoundrel. It sounds harsh, I know, but in a world otherwise devoid of absolutes, you can rest assured that anyone using the word "limn" is likely to start pouring world-class horse manure into your lap at some point in the not-too-distant future. Just the hard-won wisdom of my tender years. Do with it what you will.


  1. Ha! I can't believe that was Millie. And yet, now that I've read it here, that was definitely Millie...in a (hate to say it) pitch-perfect performance.
